Point Spread: -1.50 | -105.00 Chi White Sox (Home)
The White Sox also are a dominating 19-10 against lefty starters.
So I have no qualms laying 1 1/2 runs on the run line in a pitching matchup of southpaw Kris Bubic versus Dylan Cease.
Bubic, like his teammates, has performed much better at home. He's 1-4 on the road with a 7.16 away ERA. The White Sox won't lack motivation against Bubic. They just faced him five days ago in Kansas City and the Royals won, 3-2.
Bubic held the White Sox to two runs in six innings. I don't see him pitching that well again against Chicago in this quick turnaround spot and being on the road this time. Only five teams in the majors have a higher on-base percentage against lefties than the White Sox.
Cease is sixth in the American League in strikeouts. He has a 1.65 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings against Kansas City this year. He has a lifetime 3.11 ERA against the Royals in seven career starts.
